orleans but not the misery of flooded streets, debris and damaged homes. >> real bad, i mean, bad. every time you get yourself situation another disaster comes through. >> reporter: but through it all even a little humor. >> reporter: if you're coming into mobile you should be okay, except for the gusts of wind and the blinding rain. other than that everything is great. >> reporter: and now this entire system is moving into the midwest and northeast where you guys are. it's going to be a super soaker there as well. matt and savannah, back to you. >> we've been warned. janet shamlian in pensacola, thank you. >> she says midwest, northeast, that's us. >> that's right, and it's going to be unrelenting for the next 48 hours. show you where this thing is headed. okay. remnants of patricia, and more tropical moisture pushing in, and so we're going to be watching this now through the day today. it starts to push out into the mississippi and ohio river valleys. rain, increasing wind, local flooding becoming which had spread and then makes its way into the northeast by late wednesday afternoon. so here's what we're looking at.
7:04 am
heavy rain for today, expanding areas of rain, gusty winds, up to 3 inches of rain from paducah to cincinnati. we're watching this closely, and then as we move into tomorrow, in the northeast. the good news is we have a drought situation here in the northeast and new england. this will help, but with wind gusts of 40 to 45 miles per hour we look for major airport delays, guys, that will probably philadelphia, washington, d.c. and all through major airports here in new york city. >> keep an eye on it. al, thank you very much. >> now to this disturbing video that's getting a lot of attention this morning showing the violent arrest of a female high school student in south carolina and an investigation is now under way. natalie is following this this morning. nat, good morning. >> good morning, guys. it is hard to watch that video. the indent captured by other students in the classroom, and this morning the deputy in that video has now been banned from the school district pending the results of that investigation. outrage is growing this morning over this disturbing incident
7:05 am
captured by a student at spring valley high school in columbia, south carolina. it shows a school resource officer confronting a female student for allegedly disrupting class. >> are you going to come with me or do i have to make you? >> he asks her to come with him and after she refuses several times the confrontation escalates. it's unclear what led up to the incident, but a second video shot by another student shows the officer pulling the girl to the ground and throwing her across the floor. the officer identified by the richland county sheriff's department as deputy ben fields declined to be interview pending an investigation. >> the sheriff fully understands the seriousness of this incident and will address it once again when the investigation is completed. >> reporter: according to the sheriff's office it was only after the student refused to leave the classroom that the officer was called in. on facebook and on twitter, the video was trending with
7:06 am
the #assaultatspringvalleyhigh. the aclu and the richland black parents association with condemning the incident calling it egregious and unacceptable. school officials are working with the sheriff's department to investigate. the district superintendent released a statement saying, quote, student safety is and always will be the district's done priority. the district will not tolerate any actions that jeopardize the safety of our students. pending the outcome of the investigation, the district has directed that the school resource officer not return to any school in the district. >> the student who was detained was later released to her parents, we're also learning this morning more about deputy ben fields. now he and several other officers were sued for excessive force back in 2007, but they won that case and fields and other school officials are facing another lawsuit brought by a student for a 2013 incident claiming in part that fields unfairly and recklessly targets african-american students with allegations of gang membership
7:07 am
and criminal gang activity. fields and the other defendants deny any wrongdoing, and they have presented evidence to oppose these allegations. that case still pending, guys, but clearly this is an issue that has been ongoing here at school. >> we're just talking here, look at video and see the other students sitting like statues at their desk. it's clear they feared perhaps this person they were intimidated by this person. >> and the only weapon of choice is to record everything on video. >> exactly. >> natalie, thank you. let us turn now to the presidential race, and in a moment we'll talk exclusively to democratic hopeful senator bernie sanders, but first we've got some new poll numbers on the republican side as the candidates descend on colorado for the next debate. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is there. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. this is our first look this morning inside the spin room ahead of tomorrow night's republican debate. you've got donald trump now in second place in iowa, dr. ben carson, can he maintain his momentum? here's that new poll numbers.
7:08 am
the front-runner in iowa and is polling away, the third straight poll to show this with the support of iowa evangelicals, up double digits over trump. trump will try to reverse those numbers today when he heads to iowa, and we'll be watching to see whether he backs away from his recent criticis, his attacks of ben carson over his faith and over what trump energy. trump also raised eyebrows during that "today" show town hall in new hampshire monday. he said that his climb to the top of the business world has not been easy, describing what he called a small $1 million loan from his father. back then $1 million then by the way is the equivalent of more than $6 million today. but one of the best matchups of the night will likely be between jeb bush and marco rubio. during a powerpoint presentation to donors in houston yesterday the bush campaign put up a slide that nbc news contained that read experience matters as its title and beneath it one of the bullet points says marco is a
7:09 am
like obama the bush campaign criticized rubio for running as a first-term senator, for being a university lecturer and for having in its word fuse legislative accomplishments. the republican candidates sharing the stage for only third time when we see them here in colorado tomorrow night. matt, back to you. >> peter, thanks. a reminder you can catch that debate, "your money, your vote" tomorrow at 8:00 eastern on cnbc. >> and now to the democratic race, as hillary clinton campaign enjoys new momentum, her main rival vermont senator bernie sanders is still nipping at her heels and providing a much bigger challenge than anyone would have predicted. senator sanders, good morning. it's nice to have you here in our studio. >> great to be here with you. >> a lot of democrats really like you, some of them love you, but if you put your candidacy up side by side to hillary clinton and ask a simple question who is more likely to prevail in a general election, would you acknowledge that hillary clinton has a better chance of winning the general? >> absolutely not. actually, if you look at some of
7:10 am
trump, we do better than hillary clinton, not in all, but in many of them, and the reason for that is the enthusiasm that we are generating, a lot of working class people and young people who have given up on the political process are now coming out and they want a candidate to stand up for the big money interests and create an economy that works for all of us and not just the 1% so we're generating excitement, big voter turnouts work, democrats win under those circumstances, and i think we are the candidate to do that. >> you are progressive across the board except perhaps on the issue of guns. you've supported some reforms, but you also support legal immunity for gun manufacturers. you voted against the brady bill which calls for background checks and five-day waiting periods. do you think at this stage in this day and age that makes you a tough sell for many mainstream democrats? >> i don't and i'll tell you why, matt. what people don't know is that in 1988 when i first ran for
7:11 am
congress, there were three candidates in the race. two of them were supported by the gun groups, one of them, me, was not, and you know why? because i said in that campaign, 19828 8 i would vote to ban certain assault weapons. two years later i kept my word and by the way i have a d-minus voting record from the nra and i have been strong in saying we have got to bring people together to end these horrific massacres that we're seeing and i think as a candidate coming from a state that has virtually no gun control at all i think i can do that. >> you've sharpened your rhetoric in the last few days, hillary clinton gained new momentum in this race and one thing you point out more consistently for a longer term like gay marriage. >> right. >> on issues like trade deals. >> yeah. >> you use the word expedient a lot. let me be direct to you. do you think hillary clinton holds positions when and only because they are politically expedient?
7:12 am
make that decision, but what i will say is i have from almost day one in the congress known that our trade policies have been a disaster for american workers. we have lost millions of decent paying jobs. >> but the subtext is that hillary clinton hasn't picked up that fight where you have? >> well, let me just say this. let me put it in this way. i am delight the that in the last couple of months hillary clinton has come on board positions that i have held for many, many years on trade, on the keystone pipeline. if you're serious about climate change, you never support the transportation of some 69 dirtiest fuel on earth so i'm glad that hillary clinton is moving in my direction. >> let me talk about gridlock. people right now, senator, are so frustrated with washington. >> yes. >> president obama has had key elements of his agenda blocked by conservatives in congress. >> yes. >> you are to the left of president obama. >> yes. >> why will you succeed in getting rid of gridlock where he can't? >> great question.
7:13 am
the american people, matt, around issues that they support. people want to see the minimum wage go up, 15 bucks an hour. want to create millions of jobs and want to make public colleges and universitieses. >> but the president has tried to rally the american people. >> i will do it differently because at the end of the day what people are really upset about is that big money controls what goes on in congress, and the only way we change that is when millions of people come forward and demand the government represents all of us and not just the billionaire class. >> senator sanders, you have all of us reaching into our high school textbooks to look up the definition of socialism versus capitalism. you call yourself a democratic socialist. in our last poll 60% of respondents said they were either comfortable or very comfortable with capitalism. capitalist. i see those signs at your rallies, people say join the revolution. what about those voters who don't think a revolution sounds exciting, they think it sounds scary?
7:14 am
people aware that programs like social security, medicare, the national park system which is a wonderful system are publicly owned programs, and to also make people aware that we're the only major country on earth, savannah, that doesn't guarantee health care to all people as a right and we don't have paid family and medical leave, that we do not make public colleges and universities tuition-free as many other countries do, so i think once we get these issues out and talk about creating a government and programs that work for ordinary people rather than just the very wealthy i think more people will understand what we're talking about. >> it's nice to have you here in new york. come by and see us again. >> thank you very much. >> appreciate it. >> some other big news out of washington, by the way, house republican leaders reaching a brewing tentative budget deal with the white house aimed at stopping a government shutdown. >> if approved, the agreement would set government funding levels for the next two years and extend the nation's debt

7:17 am
mariners say can quickly turn violent. >> and it's much too early to say what the causes and contributing factors to this accident might be. >> reporter: this morning what happened in these waters remains a mystery, but investigators promise answered will surface. the victims range in age from 18 to 76. investigators say they are looking into the possibility that a rogue wave may have sent the boat to the bottom of the ocean. savannah, matt. >> all right, miguel almaguer, thank you. rescuers picking their way through very rugged terrain in the search of survivors in the massive quake that hit pakistan and afghanistan. more than 300 people have died. that number is expected to rise as search teams reach remote areas that have been cut off by that powerful 7.5 magnitude quake that triggered landslides and toppled buildings and severed communication lines. the government is cracking down on e-cigarettes on passenger planes after more than two dozen explosions and fires over about half a decade.
